Abstract

Women of African descent have been resilient, finding ways to survive for themselves and their children when in hostile environments. In so doing, transnational women of the African Diaspora emerged, revealing a multigenerational process of transformation occurring over time. Using an African Feminist perspective, this study examines what propelled the transformation that led to identity "Reformation"—trans-racial family origins, transnational family origins, and immigration. Although identity re-formation had been occurring throughout the Western Hemisphere since the slavery era, the geo-political nature of the twentieth century provided venues for African Diaspora identity formation.
